I wouldn't knock that Montgomery Ward shotgun too much. I have a Sears and Roebuck 16ga very similar that that gun above. I don't know what it is about the gun, but I love it. I also own a Ithaca Featherlight 12ga my grandfather gave me a few years back and a Benelli semi-automatic 12ga. 8 times over 10, I reach for the 16ga for bird hunts. It's such a POS gun, but it works. Never had a jam or a single problem out of it. The thing is easily 50-years old, and personally I've shot it over 3000 times in the 10-years I've owned it. My father owned it before I did, and some guy named R. Davis had it before that (his name is scratched into the action). They're very simple for a pump, yet, very reliable.
